Label 228: Art on Priority Mail Stickers


Soft Skull Press has got a new book out called Label 228, featuring art made on Priority Mail labels. Juxtapoz blogger Elise Hennigan has written a review of the book that includes some samples of the collected art. The curator, camden noir, writes of why people choose these labels as a format:

“It’s a remarkably popular method of exposure featured by graffiti artists worldwide. These labels are free, portable, and quick and easy to exhibit, offering artists the chance to spend more time creating their work than if they were to paint and write directly on walls, vehicles, and public objects.”
